Changes to applications for housing from 15 August 2022
From 15 August 2022, please call us on 0300 456 0106 if you wish to apply to join the Housing Register
We will speak with you about the reasons for your housing need and explore opportunities to improve your present housing situation
Customers need to consider alternatives to social rented housing such as private lets and shared ownership as demand for advertised homes, particularly houses and one bedroom flats, is very high
Over 100 bids are received for many advertised houses and flats and most people can expect a wait of at least 12 months

Welcome to Wiltshire

The council has a Choice Based Lettings scheme, brand name Homes4Wiltshire, for people seeking accommodation because their present homes are unsuitable.  Choice Based Lettings (CBL) schemes operate by means of ‘bids’ or expressions of interest in advertised homes from people in housing need. About 30 landlords providing affordable homes in the area including Wiltshire Council itself.

If you are homeless or threatened with homelessness, or cannot stay in your home because of violence or abuse, please call 0300 456 0106 or email  For further information about the council's homelessness services, please see the council's website here.

Demand for social rented housing significantly outstrips supply.  If you can potentially afford to buy a home, advice about low cost home ownership is available from Help to Buy South.  To learn more about how the choice-based lettings works, please click About Homes4Wiltshire above. The council's Allocation Policy can be viewed here.

For independent housing advice please see the links to Shelter and the Citizens Advice websites.
